New York businesses can file a biennial report with the Department of State. Businesses have a one-month filing period to file their biennial reports. The state considers the filing period to the be calendar month when the original document was filed. So, for example, if you registered as a business on June 16, 2016 you are eligible to file your biennial statement on June 1, 2018.

The state of New York considers biennial reports to be compliance documents that allow businesses to declare any significant changes that impact the structure of their company. For example, if a business hires a new officer or an existing officer relocates, the company must make Secretary of State’s office aware. Similarly, if a business hires a registered agent or changes their principal address, they’ll need to update this information as well. However, you should know that biennial reports do not allow businesses to change the name of their company.

Failure to file these documents in a timely fashion could jeopardize your business standing in the state of New York. If you do not file your report within the one-month filing period, the Department of State will determine your company to be delinquent. There are no penalties for filing a late biennial report to remove your delinquent status.

New York Business Biennial Report FAQS

The filing fee is just $9 for most businesses. However, domestic LLPs will pay $20 while foreign LLPs will pay $50. But, these larger fees are for a five-year period instead of the two-year period that other businesses have to pay.

The filing deadline with the New York Department of State is every two years, during the month that the business was incorporated or first granted authority to operate. For example, if your business was created in March of 2014, you’ll have to file by the end of March in all years ending with an even number.

The New York Department of State does not assess any late penalties. However, your status will be changed to “delinquent,” and over time, you could face dissolution of your business which will bring heavy fees and costs with the process of re-forming and refiling your business. It’s more affordable to simply pay the filing fee and submit your information every two years.

No. There is a two-year grace period for businesses that are started in New York.

The statement must be filed by an officer, member, or manager within your business. However, it can be prepared by anyone with authority to do so.
